Grading can be learning, for both students and teachers.
In this whitepaper, explore assessment as a data-filled intersection with great potential to inform teachers about teaching efficacy and assessment design while improving student understanding.Best practices feel like ivory-tower notions—they’re true, but often impossible to implement.
- Frequent formative assessments are touted as a key factor in fostering student learning, but how can you do that and teach?
- Item analysis is an important way to promote exam quality, but in a large lecture course, who is going to crunch that data?
- Personalized feedback is crucial to supporting the student learning journey, but who has that time?
- Rubrics are a critical component of fair assessment, but managing them with a team of human graders with unintended biases is a lofty task.
Gradescope by Turnitin brings these best practices within range for instructors to execute by bridging pedagogy with on-the-ground assessment.
